Light up your Life
Proper interior ventilation is vital to your family's health and comfort. It helps your home rid itself of moisture, smoke, cooking odors, and indoor pollutants. Ventilation controls heat levels, moderates dampness in the crawlspace and basement, and keeps moisture out of walls.
Ventilation with natural Sunlight will play a crucial role in how much you enjoy your new home. It is the removal of ‘stale’ air from inside a building and its replacement with ‘fresh’ air from outside. Adequate ventilation is essential in your home to maintain a healthy environment but also to prevent the build-up of excess levels of humidity and to provide air for fuel-burning appliances.
At one time, it was possible to achieve natural ventilation in our homes by simply opening a window. However, with growing concerns about rising energy costs, we have been busy making homes "tighter" from an efficiency standpoint. We have eliminated air leaks from our homes. Unfortunately, that means contaminants have no way to escape.
The right ventilation solution for your project will depend largely on the kind of builder you choose. If you are building a new house, it will also depend on how airtight and energy efficient the building.
